Answer for Restorative justice

Answered By: 
The Mayor

MOPAC is allocated an annual grant by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) for the provision of victims' services and such services may include the provision of restorative justice (RJ). 

However, the MOJ have not applied a ring-fence to this fund for the sole purpose of commissioning RJ services and MOPAC receives no RJ-specific grant.

I am committed to providing high quality services that meet victims' needs and through MOPAC have committed £1.2 million for the implementation of a London Restorative Justice Service - Restore:London.
